Seems like Christina Aguilera isn’t the only one weighing in on a certain diva showdown!
Legendary rocker/former Fleetwood Mac frontwoman Stevie Nicks sent shockwaves over the industry when she weighed in on the Nicki Minaj/Mariah Carey debacle from a Charlotte audition of ‘American Idol’.
While the two-some have torn fans on who was right, its clear that Nicks has taken Carey’s side in the showdown. Her statements were met with so much backlash, the 64-year-old singer was prompted to issue an apology.
Read it all below:
Via AccessHollywood (Nicks’ original statement):
“How dare this little girl!… If I had been Mariah I would have walked over to Nicki and strangled her to death right there,” the 64-year-old rocked told The Daily.com when asked about Minaj. “I would have killed her in front of all those people and had to go to jail for it.”
The singer later issued an apology, citing a tiresome day with the media to blame:
“I want to apologize for my remarks about Nicki Minaj’s behavior toward Mariah Carey which I said during a long and exhausting day of interviews. It was very out of character for me and I deeply regret what I said.
I feel very protective toward Mariah, who has gone through many difficulties in her life and I spoke without thinking. I think all artists should be respectful toward one another and that includes me. I am truly sorry.”
